Models of the Runway - E1 & 2

We have heard your pleas, minions!



Don't get us wrong, we always planned on getting around to the Models of the Runway show. It's just that we've been a mite busy with all the dress-ripping required of us these last two weeks.


Also, much as we enjoy the show, it hasn't so far lent itself to the kind of recapping and ripping that we normally do here.

While it's fun (if you're a PR fanatic) to finally see the models' reactions to the judges' decisions...

And to get a little more background on the relationships between the designers and the models...

So far, there hasn't been a whole lot of "story." Which is fine. We're perfectly happy to view the show as "bonus footage."


It's nice to see Heidi take on a little bit more of a mentor role to these girls and it's clear they all idolize the hell out of her. What young model wouldn't? She's living the dream.

Of course, it's not completely devoid of tension. They've really managed to milk the model-choosing process for all the drama they can find.


In fact, we suspect this is at least part of the reason why the viewership appears to be over-reacting to Mitchell's sins. If the model-choosing process was relegated to the first 5 minutes of Project Runway, like it used to be, there wouldn't be so much focus on who chooses whom and what the particular models think about it.

Because, come on. You never saw the models do this...

Or this, in prior seasons.

Hey, no complaints from us. We LOVE model drama, no matter how contrived it is. Where else would we have learned the delicious term "model jumper?"

With all the model jumping going on, two of the best walkers were sent home in the first two weeks, Yosuzi, who could walk like her ass was on fire, and Valerie here, who was, in our opinion, the most beautiful out of all the models.


And of course, no discussion of model drama would be complete without mentioning Fatma's scary obsession with Logan. We said that we weren't going to make assumptions about Logan's sexuality but now we almost wish he was gay just to see the Fatma's reaction when she finds out.


Because her reaction when she found out she wouldn't be walking for him anymore was PRICELESS.

Those are some scared models.

Should be interesting this week to see how well she works with a designer she clearly hates. We're going to go out on a limb and say that it's not going to be good. Could she be the model that Tim was referring to when he claimed one of them refused to wear an outfit. Stay tuned!

While it's nice that Lifetime is providing an extra show for the models
- do they need a whole hour?
- I don't care about how they are working out, practicing their walk, etc... because whether they win or lose is based on luck and arbitrary decisions.
- as much as anyone says that a model and make or break an outfit, I believe most of these designers hang on to their models for superstitious reasons or because they are familiar with their measurements.


the show is only a half hour.


In the first two episodes, the models have come off as shallow and not all that bright. It has the potential to turn into a very tedious half-hour of TV as the weeks go by.


I agree with you guys, it's a nice bonus and we get more time for the actual episode. I can't wait to watch tonight's episode. How is Fatma going to work with Mitchell when he clearly knows she hates him?


LOL I LOVE Fatma!


After snoring my way through the first episode, I actually liked the second and am looking forward to the third, if only to see Fatma wig out all episode.

Seriously. She is going to lose it. I would almost bet money she's the model who refused to wear an outfit. If it's not tonight's outfit, it will be on in the future.

I totally agree with you though. If you view this show as televised "bonus footage," and you in fact enjoy bonus footage, then it works.


Valerie modelling that chicken and the egg, really reminded me of those pics of Angelina Jolie all belly and lips (while she's been pregnant).

Fatma seems psycho - so much so that maybe I need to post under a different screen name

I'll go anon instead


I was so sad to see Yosuzi go since she worked Mitchell's barely there dress.


The first episode the model of the winning look got a great prize and the second episode nada...
I wonder whether it is just going to be random?

I understand much of the models' disdain for Mitchell - but seriously do NOT understand the attitude about JPII


Fatma. Oh lordy. The very first thing I thought when I saw her reaction to being picked by Mitchell was that she was the one who would refuse to wear a garment. We shall see!


I thought I was going to like seeing the models being shown as themselves but after a couple of weeks I liked them better being seen and not heard. It's just not that compelling to see them hang out for a day before the designers choose which model walks for who.

I understand why 'suzq' thought it was an hour - it does seem to drag on.


TLo said: "We have heard your pleas, minions!"


thanks guys!!

while a lot of what has been included in these first two episodes of MOR has felt like filler, the bits with the models reactions to the judging and relationships with the designers has been interesting. And, yes, it does feel like PR has messed with the model selection process in the interest of creating more drama, but transferring that action to MOR frees up more design-time on PR.

I do think that the designers tend to be a mite superstitious about keeping models from one week to the next, although it probably is much easier for them as well knowing their model's measurements and body type.

And, yes, it will be deliciously interesting tonight to see how Fatma interacts with Mitchell.

srq


If I were Logan and Mitchell, I'd be investing in extra security. Girl is CRAZY, and she'll be taking them down with her.

I'm hoping karma comes around and the designers, seeing her inappropriate and unprofessional reaction to being chosen by Mitchell, get her knocked out soon. You know, before she starts cutting off locks of Logan's hair to keep stashed in her bra.

I'm rooting for Kalyn for selfish reasons - one of my friends has done her headshots and other photos in recent years, and she's a sweet girl.


"Because, come on. You never saw the models do this...

Or this, in prior seasons."

Oh Ladies, look back at your s.1 recaps...

Besides that, MotR is a snooze fest that I can go 30 minutes without on a Thurdsay night.

And Fatma really needs to CTFD over this Logan shit. You're not his type, honey. Move on.


I love model drama. And Valerie WAS one of the best, I really can't believe she wasn't picked....

I completely agree with you about Logan, now I REALLY REALLY want him to be gay. Is that wrong?


This show can't keep my attention, at all. I always start to watch, but 5 minutes in I'm usually not giving a crap anymore.

It just doesn't do anything for me to watch them work out or talk about the bitchy tendencies between them. Maybe it'll be more interesting the less of them there are, but in the meantime I always turn it off.

Nice try, Lifetime. But nooooo thanks.


Maybe I have low expectations, but I don't think that all of the models come across as shallow and dim as TED said. It is kind of interesting to "get to know them better" through this show - but I find it easier to sit through online when it is 20 straight minutes.


Could not give less of a shit about the models. So goddamned boring. They only deserve those five minutes they used to get. I watch Runway for the designers, not the mannequins they put their designs on for display purposes. T-Lo, keep the posts to the fashion, please, please, please, and not the brain-dead dolls wearing it on the runway.


It is actually nice to hear what the models think of the designers. Of course with prize money and a new, complete model selection every time, the models will have to work the shit of the runway each time to sell themselves. This aspect will likely only work for the first half of the show. By that time most of the designers will be content to stick with who they have. Unless of course you have a drama-filled Morgan situation. Or a situation like Nazri or Lea where designers were fighting over them.

I do think it was sweet the way they all comforted Malvin. They genuinely seemed to like him. Of course it's only natural they would rather have him around than Mitchell

Also too bad about Valerie she was a good runway model. Then again a lot of these girls seem to be doing a good job. I love how Amanda Fields in her blog wrote "see what happens when you offer money as a prize". Interestingly she says Fatma is a sweetheart in real life and people in industry love to work with her.

What I don't get is the Logan fan club. I mean he's not repulsive by any means but so many models lusting after him. Are they that cut off from the rest of the world?

FRank


I like having the model selection moved to the ancillary show. I do think a lot of the drama is contrived, but I still find it enjoyable as bonus footage.


HellsKitchenDude

Hahahahahahahahaha. Fatma is crazy. I hear Hitchcock music in the background.

That's a little harsh, don't you think?

I'd say, keep the MOTR posts coming. I enjoy the model bit. It's entertaining.


I love Models of the Runway! In the last couple of seasons of PR, I have missed the more detailed model selection process. I am happy to see it's return.

I couldn't agree with you fellas more about the first two models who were eliminated. They were amazing looking and could walk beautifully. And Yosuzi's husky voice, WOW! They were definitely two of the strongest out there.

It really makes me wonder if the designers can't see them objectively anymore, because if they could, Mitchell shoulda/woulda picked Valerie of Fatma any day of the week!

Truly. It's like an episode of Tyra before the fame set in. The crazy is already live and IFE.


FATMA ROCKS!!!!!! KILL BITCHELL GIRL!!!!!


Boys, you are going to have to clone yourselves to keep up this punishing pace!

And I agree with you about Valerie: she's gorgeous. I couldn't believe they all let her get away.


Love it! And thank you for recapping, boys. I felt bad for Yosuzi, she saved Bitchell's ass.


Valerie is GORGEOUS!! How could they let her go????


I agree the show is mostly "bonus footage", which I personally enjoy. I think some of the posters here had too high of expectations for the MOR show. It is basically exactly what I expected...

I also think Valerie was the most stunning out of all the models, but if I were a designer and my model wasnt terrible, I would most likely stay with her due to fit etc.


What I don't understand is...these girls are starting out in their careers and should be on their best behavior. If I needed a model, I don't care how gorgeous she is, Fatma would so totally be not hired. I'd get my freaking sister or go out on the street to find someone at random to do it over her. Doesn't she realize that her attitude and psycho stalking behavior is going to cost her JOBS in the future? Or is she doing this all to gain attention to take the "I was the crazy one" reality show ride for all its worth?


Love it! It's short, and it's really just some extra footage. I love to watch their reaction watching who gets eliminated because they know their asses are on the line.


I think "Models of the Runway" is a genius idea, but then I love bonus footage.

I can't imagine this costs a lot to produce, but it hooks the PR audience for another half hour and it shows lifetime is moving forward with the franchise whilst being respectful of fan's expectations.

Plus the Logan/Fatma/Mitchell strut triangle is already so melodramatic and it's only week two. What was Fatma thinking? That type of reaction to the compliment of being chosen can't make any of the designers want to work with her.


Fatma is way too much in love with Logan and that will destroy her.


Thanks for this! The day to day model stuff is meh, but I love seeing the model selection process instead of having to wonder whether they were paired randomly or what.

Kojii is oddly fascinating, so I'll watch for her, too.


Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Boys, that screecap of Fatma is priceless!

I think she overreacted and that can screw her big time.


Guys, while yes, we've never seen a Fatma-esque reaction during the model choosing before, we certainly have seen celebrations (albeit often more discreet ones) in S1 and many models talked about how they were so happy to get Austin/Kara/Jay.

Also to the people complaining about how they "messed with" the model selecting process: This is almost the same as S1, we're just getting more model interviews. Personally I disliked the S2-S5 system, so I'm happy about the change. :)


Watching this show is giving me a better idea of why the designer's models on previous seasons of Project Runway (and in the all-star version) so often show up late or not at all. There's an incredible lack of professionalism, and most of them don't seem to take their jobs seriously at all. Fatma doesn't give a damn about making it clear to the entire country that she doesn't want to work with Mitchell, and in the first episode one of the models literally threw herself on the ground behind the screen after being chosen. Heidi and the designers thought she had injured herself. I know these girls are only like 20 years old, but still....get a grip!


Why does anyone think we should care about the models at all? They're just there to be human hangers and that's it. As anything other than additional footage of PR, this show really isn't worth the time.

Maybe now that the models have their own show, PR won't have problems with models just not showing up sometimes.


Thanks, TLo. I think this show is a hoot, and a nice addition to the lineup. We get to see a little model drama without it taking away from the designer and fashion drama. We saw more of this the first couple of seasons and frankly I had missed it a little the last couple. And for the haters, come on. If you don't like MOTR or it isn't to your taste, just don't watch it!

I am really looking forward to seeing it play out tonight. I suspect the models were encouraged to "let it all hang out" for the camera, and that is why Fatma reacted so strongly. It may be risky for her career, though, to appear so emotional.

The designer choices are kind of strange, because I thought for sure someone would pick up Yosuzi and Valerie. I understand sticking with the body you are familiar with, but when their model was taken someone should have grabbed those two.


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

Thanks TLo, for taking the time to cover this.

I don't watch it on Thursdays, but I do record it and treat it like bonus material.

With all the models up for grabs each challenge, you'd figure the models with the strongest walks would be chosen for the next round. But with Yosuzi and Valerie gone, I'm wondering WTF, and if some of the designers even know what a good model can do for them.

Fatma's crush seems okay if you think of these models as young girls, not grown women (and Valerie was one of the few I considered the latter). I see this behavior in many of the students I volunteer with. And her reaction was just as juvenile. Karma, dear. Karma.

Looking forward to the model drama, and what damage Mitchell will do to the talent pool!


I find it kind of ridiculous or maybe just jealousy that the other models complained about Erika talking to her mom(?) about possibly getting some other work.
(Of course, we don't know if she was just excited or being obnoxious about it.)

I guess that they are not totally "sequested" while they are on PR?


Memo to the Anonymi who call the models "brain dead dolls," "human hangers," etc.:

They are, in fact, actual human beings and likely represent the same range of intelligence, talent, and interests you'd find in any random group of people. A little respect for your fellow humanoids, please.


Fatma's reaction to Mitchell's selecting her was a bit scary. I suppose we'll find out tonight if she decided not to rip Mitchell's head off and work with him.

Then again, this is a team challenge, so perhaps the team will use Ra'mon's model....


I do like the bonus footage as it relates to the competition, but not all the other stuff. I agree that Valerie was awesome and I was shocked she wasn't picked by someone. And I kinda understand why Fatma likes Logan because boy is hot, but she is way obsessive and possessive. Very strange indeed. Poor little Mitchell doesn't know what he got himself into. Time to say goodbye to our wretched little sewer?

" I find it kind of ridiculous or maybe just jealousy that the other models complained about Erika talking to her mom(?) about possibly getting some other work. "

I looked it at as if Erika was new to the business, calling her mom about every call-back, every audition, ect. Models who have been in the business for a while take it as old hat, because they get call-backs and auditions every day. They weren't jealous, just kind of rolling their eyes at the new girl. At least that's how I see it.


I don't think Fatma is a stalker. For cripes sake she is a a little imature but give her a break. When you first get a crush on someone you go a little crazy.
And Mitchell can't sew, I don't blame anyone for not wanting to be picked by him. He has been in the bottom three every time. Nobody wants to go down with that sinking ship.

& it's going to be HELLA fun to watch!


I watched the first episode, but after that I've lost interest. I'd just rather watch PR. Lifetime is certainly flooding us with additional tidbits, aren't they? It's a bit overwhelming at times. But don't stop!

Boys, you should totally sell "TLo's Minions" t-shirts. And coffee mugs! I could use a new one!


I enjoy the model stuff, but I've continued to watch ANTM much to my shame. I would really like to have seen backstage stuff that corresponds to the PR action, though. Yosuzi's POV on her measurements, for instance. I don't really care about house drama, I want THEIR perspective on what goes on on PR.


I'm not sure if I said this in response to another post, but wouldn't it be great if the models chose the designers? And what if the model of the losing designer got to choose first each week? I'd love to watch that!

As of now, I start out this show each week but change the channel before it's done.


They did that once in season 3 (for the style icon challenge). But I'm glad that's not a regular thing because this process USUALLY weeds out the not-so-great models and leaves the best ones as muses for the designers.


Eh' guess I'm easy cause I'm loving this. I hope Fatima last just for the drama. Can you imagine if they had done this first season and we got to Morgan backstage?


Ugh. Fatma's "camera attitude" has been so overdone on reality shows. Something new, please!!


I LOVE Fatma! LOVELOVELOVE
She needs to be around all season to create lots and lots of crazy model drama!


I totally love bonus footage, which is why I'm slightly disappointed with the show. They couldn't find a few more minutes of designers and models interacting? I agree that the model house stuff is totally boring, and watching a model watch other models work out...?
Fittings, backstage stuff, helping to finish garments, that's what has the potential to be interesting on this show.
I do like that we see the model choosing here, though, so there is more time for other things on the main stage.


I perfer the models being featured in their own show b/c now we get 5 more minutes of the actual show! And if you aren't interested in the models, you just cut off your TV at 11 pm. The one thing that worries me is that it kind of prevents the "real people" challenges that happen each year. B/c if the models aren't used that week, then it is hard to have an extra show. And that was shown this week. It would have been much more interesting to see the designers to design for REAL pregnant women instead of stick thin models w/ a fake belly. Then they would have been forced to consider things like accomodating a bra.


That last sentence should read "Got to see Morgan backstage.


I, too, am disappointed by most of MOTR. The portion of the show when the models are chosen is interesting, as are the models' reactions to the judging. But the focus on which-model-likes-which-model in the apartment and model workouts is boring and predictable. I'd rather see more of the interactions between the designers and the models during the fittings. And hear the models' opinions on the clothes.

Points to MOTR, though, for letting us get to know Valerie, who seems interesting. As for Fatima, no, she shouldn't have displayed her reaction to being chosen by Mitchell, but I'll bet every one of the models would feel the same way if he'd chosen her since the last 2 episodes have shown that the model paired with the losing designer is likely to be auf'd herself.

Me, too. I know I have a bit of ADD/ADHD, but I simply cannot make it through this show. It's a good thing it follows PR because otherwise....

Thanks, TLo for the re-cap. You actually managed to show all of the only real interesting moments of the show. It's not exactly a terrible show, it just seems to lack a center or focus. And, I, too, was really sad when Valerie got the designer boot from the competition. I liked her and she was kind of the gorgeous elder statesmodel of the group. I haven't been very interested in any of the other models, at all -- even the nasty, troublesome chick --- whatever her name is.

- edina -


Even at half-hour the show feels a bit long, but I have to admit the 2nd episode was much better than the first one. Thanks to Fatma for that! Since the next challenge is a team challenge (groups of 2), I'm betting that the team of Ra'mon and Mitchell will choose to use Ra'mon's model, which would be unfortunate b/c I'm dying to see Fatma roll her eyes when Mitchell unveils his latest atrocity.


Oh Ladies, look back at your s.1 recaps...

I can't do the link thing right now, but here it is for some of your viewing pleasure:

http://projectrungay.blogspot.com/2006/11/modelicious.html


I was in shock that no one picked Valerie! I think she was one of the best and one of the most beautiful, besides a seemingly pleasant personality!!
So far, both models 'aufed' were Mitchell's models - let's she if Fatma follows in line with the curse of 'Mitchell's Model Mojoe'!!!
TDinC


A lot of the designers seem to be oblivious to the benefits of having a great walker.
For some of them to keep the "horse stompers" they were stuck with and let greatness like Yosuzi and Valerie go made me scratch my head in befuddlement.
Ans SOME designers seem to think the reason they got on the bottom three involves the model being good enough instead of recognizing that their model saved their sorry bad-sewing ass from elimination.


They are, in fact, actual human beings and likely represent the same range of intelligence, talent, and interests you'd find in any random group of people. A little respect for your fellow humanoids, please.

I agree that everyone deserves respect. And I think that the range of personalities for models who aren't yet established is similar to that in the general population.

However, this is a group of people who believe that the most valuable thing to offer society is their ability to wear clothes. So while you may find the occasional person who simply thought she could make more money doing this than by, say, going to law school, it's not unreasonable to assume that these young women have ignored educational and intellectual accomplishments to focus on their walks and waistlines.

It doesn't mean they're not nice people, but I think they are more likely to be shallow. Shallow can be entertaining in the short run, when coupled with sufficient drama, but in the long run it becomes tedious.


"However, this is a group of people who believe that the most valuable thing to offer society is their ability to wear clothes."

Wow, that's some pretty amazing mind-reading there. When I was 20 I worked at Toys R Us for a while. Does that mean I thought the most valuable thing to offer society was my ability to put toys on shelves?

Absolutely! What's the problem, here?


I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

Bonus plus? Don't have to take time for model-choosing on the big show.


I like toys. I like clothes. There are people who are employed by every single thing we can think of to buy, and yes, they do offer something to society. Without models, they would just strap dressforms to a moving sidewalk and roll them out for us to see. Great day, these girls are pretty and managed to have been born that way. I was born with many talents, but being 5'10" and gorgeous beyond belief is not one of them (even though I think I'm kinda cute), so these women probably are smart and I'd bet some are pretty well educated.


*srq said
"And, yes, it does feel like PR has messed with the model selection process in the interest of creating more drama, but transferring that action to MOR frees up more design-time on PR."

If only this were true! I feel like we are seeing less of the actual designing and making of garments. The Real World producers are going strictly for drama here.


I agree with Greencat, I'm glad they've gone back to each designer choosing a model every episode. I've never understood the s2-s5 process - how can it be a competition for the models if only one designer is able to change models per episode?

It brings to mind that whole Zulema model walk off drama - her model definitely couldn't walk, so I doubt she would have lasted as long as she did if the designers had been able to swap each episode.

It does seem like two of the best walkers were eliminated this season already, but I do wonder how much attachment plays into it. Can anyone tell me how much of a bonus it is to use the same model, so you already know her measurements, etc.? With all the fitting problems we've seen, perhaps designers put up with a model that maybe isn't the best walker just because they're already familiar with her and her measurements?


Valerie was my favorite, too. She's gorgeous and very down-to-earth... I think she would be a gift to any designer.


This show could really evolve. There's not really a competition for the models, just pure luck.

I would like this show to start becoming a platform as a real competition for the models. If they can't walk or photograph well, they get aufed - before the designers get their pick.


another laura

My name is another laura (hi, another laura), and I watch ANTM. Oh, man, I can't stop, even with the cast of crazies that makes that show run. Maybe it's because of the crazies that I watch it. I don't watch MMaS because it seemed too professional.

I like MotR. I think it will get more fun when the number of contestants gets smaller, much as PR will. Don't stop recapping it, TLo! I agree with other posters that it's basically bonus footage, and who doesn't like bonus footage??


I wish they had done this show in some of the previous years!

Would have loved to see some more of my two favorites, Camilla & Nazri.


What I find amusing, and enlightening, in a way, is how these beautiful women-- whose job title is basically used as a synonym for "gorgeous"-- can act every bit as silly and giggly and obsessive about a guy as any average college girl. It just isn't what I expected.


I'd take a 90 minute Project Runway over this silly show any day!


I agree with Anna!! A 90 minute PR would be great!!! There is so much more they could show - the workroom is very entertaining!!! TDinC


I never called the models "brain dead dolls." They may be quite intelligent, but the point is that why should we care? Their job is to walk and wear clothes, and occasionally pose akwardly. Maybe they do have more to offer the world - let me know when they do and then I might care.


Who else thinks maybe the location has something to do with the models living together and thus allowing for "back at the house" drama? I'm betting back in New York in prior seasons the girls stayed in their own places, away from the cameras.

I'm sorry to see Valerie go, because she's stunning and sane, and Yosuzi, because she worked that dang gauze caftan so well. My favorite model so far, however, is Vanessa because I enjoy her comments. She gives good sound bite.


You know, I own all the previous seasons of PR on DVD, and frequently re-watch them while I sew. One of my laments has been, "Season One was the best, partly because they included so much more about the models! Subsequent seasons have been weaker because they include nothing about the models."

I take it back. Season One was superior t.v. because of the personalities (Jay McCarroll, Morganza, Austin Scarlett, not to mention the whole Wendy-Kara Saun bitchfest).

But now that we have a whole half hour to learn about the models, we discover that they have been justly neglected in seasons 2-5. The models of the runway, when given a forum, have nothing much to say.

I sort of think that the models should get airtime when they have something interestin ggoing on, but not otherwise.

As time went on in past seasons, we became more and more attuned to what models we loved, and in turn, would have loved to see more of them. (For me, Grace and Nazri and Camilla).
I think that as the time goes, and we see more of what the models can do, the show might be a bit more entertaining. As of now, it is pretty vapid, and I'll watch the reruns when I get a chance until it becomes a bit better.


I too like this show as "bonus footage." I also wonder if Valerie or Yosuzi have much sympathy for Fatma.

As for Logan, does anyone else think he looks a little like a younger Barry Watson?

(another suz)


I kind of thought Yosuzi might be the model Tim had to coax (cudgel) into her outfit and that was why Mitchell didn't want her anymore.


In the first two episodes, the models have come off as shallow and not all that bright. It has the potential to turn into a very tedious half-hour of TV as the weeks go by.

Kind of like the Real Housewives of NJ!!


PinkPrincess

I can't wait to see what happens tonight!


Go Fatma!!! Go girl!!!!


Fatma R.O.C.K.S!


I don't understand why people are saying the models are shallow; they're walking on a runway, they're not attending a World Peace Conference.


I'm sorry, but If someone told me that I was going to have to wear something that Mitchell made, I would have acted exactly like Fatma. I love that girl, and hope she wins!!

Exactly and you know he'll dump her and pick somebody else.


Fatma's behavior was inappropriate, you should never behave like that in front of a designer. Good luck getting jobs, girlfriend!


LOVE the show!!! I'll watch anything with models.


Fatma - The new Morgan


Fatma didn't hold anything back, did she? LOL My kind of girl.


Metamorphine

Fatma is crazy. Her shadow behind the Project Runway logo is hilarious! I felt bad for Yosuzi, she did not deserve to go home.

I wish they had done this show in some of the previous years!

Would have loved to see some more of my two favorites, Camilla & Nazri.


I agree, Nazri too.


I was very surprised that Yosuzi got sent home. I thought she might win the whole thing.

She's such a beauty and a class act that I'm not worried about her finding jobs. In fact, I think soon it's going to be Yosuzi's world and we'll just be living in it.


Not fair!!!! Yosuzi behaves like a lady, works her ass off and is sent home; Fatma IS PICKED and behaves like a spoiled brat. Good luck getting Logan in your bed, Fatma!!!


Yeah, the FatMa is more irritation than entertainment for me.

Boys, they're still wigstands to me. But I agree with your point about that beautiful one who got eliminated. Shame. She seemed poised and elegant.


Yeah, uh, I was surprised about the two eliminations -- especially Valerie last week. I was shocked; she is absolutely gorgeous.

Also, Tom and Lorenzo, since you've met a handful of the models, I have a question for you: is this season particularly short or is this the norm for Project Runway? I looked on the Lifetime website and nearly all of them are 5'8" to 5'9." 5'9" I expected, but 5'8" is rather short for runway models.


Okay, relooking and it seems like there are more 5'10" people than I remember. Did they all grow in the past week? They're not THAT young.

Still, though, there are seven models 5'9" and under. It seems a little short from my experience.


I'm satisfied with the model show this week. I was not impressed with the Ericas.

It's good to have Valerie back, she did her best to save Malvin in last week's episode.

I never noticed how Louise Black and Lisa Blades had the same initials and stuff. Kinda makes me sad they're not working together now but I think Fatma's a good model for Louise to work with.


In fact, we suspect this is at least part of the reason why the viewership appears to be over-reacting to Mitchell's sins.

Nah, he just didn't impress.

I love that a model's name is Fatma. Fat Ma. Or as we call her around here .. Fat Mammy.

Erika Macke still looks like rusty cat vomit.


I think when there are fewer models, it'll be much more interesting and much more competitive. Sort of like how it goes on PR.

Valerie! Definitely the model everyone should want.

And Fatma? Trouble trouble trouble!


Okay, Vanessa looked down right ridiculous complaining about Fatma "sucking up to and trying to steal her model" when in last weeks clips we see Fatma chatting with all the designers and her voiceover saying that she liked to be on a friendly basis with all of the designers so they'd want to work with her.

I also give Fatma points for realizing that she kinda wrong for blowing up at Vanessa, and rather than let the tension simmer in the house she sought Vanessa out--and the first thing out of her mouth was an apology. Instead of accepting it with a "I'm still upset with what happened but I do appreciate the fact that you apologized..thank you", Vanessa breaks down into this completely hysterical hissyfit. I think I see the problem here...and it's not Fatma.

In other news, HEY! Valerie's back!

This. Seriously.


Honestly I think this is such a silly idea on Lifetime's part. I can't speak for everyone, but I personally could not care less what some 20 year old girl who knows nothing about fashion except how to fit into it has to say about anything.

Models, like children, should be seen and not heard.


i like fatma. :)


I really don't like Fatma
She is not very nice, Last
episode she talked bad about americans, Why is she here?
And she was so obsessed with Logan.
Anyway the show is awesome, But Fatma please lighten up.
